    Having a HELL of a time trying to push the spring to the side and out. Hands hurt like a MFer. Anyone have any tips on how to do it? The youtube videos make it look so easy. 😅

    Glock 43x. Shield Arms Steel Mag Catch.

    You really gotta have the angled/hook tool. Harbor Freight or Autoparts store.

    No real secret. I had trouble with mine too. Just had to keep working at. I did a 48 few months back and will be doing a 43x in a few days.

    I had the same issue with mine doing the same thing. No real secret just keep finger fucking it and youll get it sooner or later.

    Flat blade screw driver, thinner is better. Takes only a minute.

    Buy a cotton pick set at a hardware store. The offset pick worked best for me.
